Are you shocked by our government’s recent attacks on civil society? Frustrated by Australia’s treatment of refugees? Want to see real action to address climate change?

This is your invitation to get involved with GetUp Hobart to take deeper action on the issues you care about.

GetUp Hobart is a local group of GetUp members who meet regularly and take action together on important issues to ensure local voices aren’t just heard, but that they make a real difference. And they are looking for new people to join them!

GetUp Hobart is one of 40 local GetUp Action Groups around the country working together to take back people power. It’s an ambitious network of volunteers who have already had a huge impact in the recent Queensland state election by calling into marginal electorates to have meaningful conversations with voters about protecting the Great Barrier Reef and other critical issues.

Sound interesting?

By coming along this Saturday 24 February, you’ll be trained in GetUp’s core Powerful Conversations training module. You’ll hear how one-to-one conversations are the backbone of a successful campaign – whether that’s through door-knocking, stalls, phone calls, or with family and friends. You’ll learn how to engage with people’s values and concerns, shift their perspective and move them to action.

Being part of the Hobart Action Group means meeting like-minded people, gaining new skills in social change, and working together in a collective to make a difference on the issues you care about.
